A closer look at Art In The Townships

Here's What We'll Be Doing

  1. Visit artists inside their home studios to discover what's happening in the township beyond the media gaze. Talk to the artists and support their work with pieces that inspire you.
  2. Visit art-focused community programming and learn how creativity is being used to foster hope and collaboration.
  3. "Happy Beach" is far beyond the walls of Cape Towns multimillion dollar homes but is stunning no less. It's the local beach with music booming from car stereo speakers, drinks flowing, and the water waiting for you.
